Has anybody looked at lynxmotion 5 robotic arm kit
from www.omnitronelectronics.com would this be a good kit
to learn from.we are thinking about using a arm for press break work
like motorman or kuka would this help me learn how to program.
Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.
I used fanuc welding robots back in the late 90's, you would be very surprised how easy they are to run/edit programs.
All we had to do was, flip to setup, jog the direction buttons on the bot, then save the program, flip to run, turn the welder off, run the program slow (20%), verify everything looks good, run wide open.
The robots I used had a pendant with direction buttons, just the same as a gamepad, also had a bunch of other machine specific buttons, wire feed, etc...

I think you will find the best way to learn is to use the actual robot you will be working with. If you buy a robot from the factory, training is included. Normally 3-5 days for 2 people.
Some neat features:
Define a plane with three points, then you can move anywhere you want in X,Y on that plane.
Can move in X,Y,Z coordinates rather than moving the 6 axes individually.
Can move any axis and the robot will maintain the current position of the end effector by adjusting the other axes.
Its hard to beat putting two 6-7 axis robots together in one package:
